VPN stands for Virtual Private Network. It is a network of multiple computers which can interact with each other though the mediator (VPN server). Such communication is fully encrypted and secured, so no hacker can ‘listen’ to it. It is generally recommended to use any VPN product to encrypt online communication when using public Wi-Fi networks (airports, coffees, restaurants).

Main features of Avast SecureLine VPN are encrypted private connection and ability to bypass geo-restricted content. It is a paid (premium) product from Avast which works on multiple platforms:
